This paper presents the results of ongoing work realizing a mobile virtual museum that enables the connection between locally dispersed museums, collections and artefacts. The mobile application interconnects venues, objects and stories for an enhanced user experience and increased learnability inside the museum. It contextualizes information and reveals missing and hidden links between the digital replicas of the objects displayed in four different venues under one storyline. Within this context, we also provide a preliminary evaluation on how the mobile virtual museum could be used as support to indirect formal learning of young visitors, improving memorability.
